The ‘last came on a touchdown run by Cashmyn Belgarde, who along with his offensive line, gave the Titans fits all game.

Turtle Mountain’s Keon Laduce‘r celebrates after returning a Watford City punt for a touchdown during last week’s big'win over the Wolves. The Wolves got the ball back with 6:40 left in the half but back-to-back holding calls stifled the offense and led to a passing game that was sud— denly made more difficult after a north wind of around 20 mph kicked up. Regardless of the stiff breeze, the Wolves attempted a long pass on sec- ond down and 36. Connor LaVallie was on the coverage and stepped in front of the receiver in time for an in— terception. The Belcourt offense went back to work with five minutes left in the half .' Running back Blue Kellogg got loose for a 21 yard gain down to the Watford City 24-yard line. The opportunity for another score was lost, however, when the Wolves intercepted a pass and took over on their own 12—yard line with 3:15 left. Rather than surrender to the stiff wind in their faces, the Wolves opted to keep on passing and press for a score. On fourth a 15 from midfield, the squad went for it and completed a 15 yard pass that came with more real estate after a 15—yard personal foul penalty on the Braves. * C w . ‘3 them!“ edge: leggy”? 5: Braves (Continued from Page 9) Q3”! a 7..., 2‘ s.

The Braves led 16-12 at the break. Goumeau said the wind played a factor in the second half and the team opted to fight it at first in order to use it in the fourth quarter. “Both teams made mistakes, but when it came down to the end, we had the advantage,” Goumeau said. “Our special teams came up big and we adjusted our defense and picked it up more in the second half. Our of- fense controlled the football.” . Goumeau said after the two teams traded the lead throughout the half, a r . lake big defensive play sealed the fate of the Wolves. “On (Watford City’s) last drive for the tying score, the ball was deflected and Blue Kellogg intercepted it to seal the game,” Goumeau said.
